Chlorine Sky | Sticky Note Reviews

I picked up Chlorine Sky by Mahogany Browne from as a part of their Audio Listening Copies (ALC) program for educators. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t know anything about it when I started listening to it. I’d just finished Jerry Craft’s Class Act, I was folding laundry, and I needed an audiobook to keep listening to. This one was short enough that I could listen to it in its entirety while finishing up chores for the day.

With gritty and heartbreaking honesty, Mahogany L. Browne delivers a novel-in-verse about broken promises, fast rumors, and when growing up means growing apart from your best friend.

from Goodreads

And the Sticky Note below says:

Chlorine Sky is a slam-sounding novel-in-verse about a girl who can hang on the court with the boys, about friendships that aren’t really friendships, about what happens when we make ourselves small to appease other people. Through this collection of free-verse poems, Sky comes to terms with the loss of a friendship and figures out that there’s nothing wrong with taking up space. ⁣
